College/Frat Life

I have recently taken an interest to historic images, especially colleges in the 1940’s and 1950’s.  They interest me not only on a nostalgic yearning for the good old days level, but also sartorially.  I love the style of students attending Ivy Leagues in the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s.  The best way to illustrate this style is through the following photographs.  More reading on this subject can be done at http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/17/fashion/18codes.html?_r=1.

How frats should be (Sigma Chi, Northwestern 1949)

Proud to say this reminds me of 201

Practicing for a Sobriety Test

University of the South, 1940

No iphones, Call of Duty 2 or Blu-Ray DVD’s.  Just a pipe, a paper and some good conversation.
